Default Waves factory preset folder location/Mac

Folder organization/location for Waves factory presets has always been rather convoluted, but now, for the life of me, I cannot find them anywhere. Even a search for a preset name with system files included, hidden files included gives me no clues as to where they currently live.

It ain't the Application/Waves folder, can't find them nested in Application Support anywhere either. Also, no go on the User/Documents/Pro Tools folder.

Anyone on Mac have any idea where to find them?
Thanks!!!

Not at my computer right now but i think that the factory presets are stored in the plugin itself. User presets are stored in Users/Shared/Waves (or something like that.)

With the new Waves Central installer they moved the impulse responses folder.


It is still in Applications/Waves... you just need to go one folder deeper. I think it is Applications/Waves/Plugins or something like that. It is the folder that contains all your plugins. The folders are still called impulse responses and impulse responses V2.

Thanks guys. No luck finding the actual preset files. Benny might be right about them being built into the plugins themselves now.

LDS you are correct about the IRs... they live in Applications/Waves/Data

Sigh. I'd like to be able to integrate the presets they gave out a few months ago in line with the built in artist presets, but it looks like you are forced into importing within the plugin to the user folder.

You might try saving a preset to see what directory it points to.

Not at my computer to check

But in PT 2018 on a Mac does anyone know where Waves stores user presets?

Thanks.
